It is fitting and right that a backup quarterback who considered leaving the game was thrust onto an international stage to lead a team trying for decades to win a title for a big city of small communities with warm and friendly, unpretentious people. In Jersey we ask “What’s your exit?” They ask “Which church?” After the victory, QB Nick Foles seemed more joyed by his baby daughter Lily’s fascination with the confetti and noise and flashing lights. You gotta love that.
A story book ending for a place that accurately can be called the cradle of our liberty. Hard to find a place with more of our history. Add this game to the list.
Yo Philly! Enjoy every second of it.
